The LFHHS Chorley Family History Research Centre is housed in part of the Astley Hall Farmhouse.
Pictures of the opening of the Astley Hall Farmhouse by the Mayor Councillor Roy Lees are available at the Chorley Family History Research Centre website. http://www.cfhrc.com/opening-of-the-astley-hall-farmhouse-17-october-2014.html
The Chorley Family History Research Team are working hard to get the Centre open as soon as possible. The big hold up is that we are still waiting for the broadband connection to be installed by BT. Early November now looks most likely but please watch this space.
This refurbishment will provide a Research Centre comprising an all purpose research room, a computer research room, a library room, a training/meeting room, kitchen, and toilet. All heating, lighting, electrics, carpets have been replaced and all the walls redecorated.
If you are intending to visit during October or November please contact us before visiting to make sure that it has reopened. Tel 01257-262028
